will continue to make investments in these cutting edge technologies. so our economy has made progress and that progress has made the united states an even better place to invest. but i want to underscore for everyone here that we are not satisfied with the current pace of job creation and economic growth. we know that there are things that we can do to invest in american skills, american innovation, and american infrastructure. so that the united states remains the most attractive place around the globe to do business. taking action in these areas is good for growth and it's good for job creation. while the process create unnecessary anxiety, congress proved it can still do what is needed when it came together on a bipartisan basis just two weeks ago to reopen our government and raise the statutory debt limit. it's now time for congress to make a pro-growth, pro-jobs ageneral ka the focal point. this will strengthen our economy at home and further cement the united states as the best place to invest, hire, and grow businesses. let me point to the key areas we we can make a difference
or expenditures on science and technology. the chinese seem to have a better space program than we do these days. >> you mention defense. we've got a graphic that shows how defense spending as a percentage of the tkpwopd has gone -- as a percent of the g.d.p. has gone down. in 2012 it was 12.3%. fast forward to the 2016 estimate and it looks like just 3.1%. what's the matter with spending less on our national defense, professor? >> let's look at what's happening in the middle east and asia. in the middle east we've abandoned egypt, for example, narrowing our focus. they justify this by saying we're shifting resources to asia. look at what has shifted to asia. not that much. now the japanese, the prime minister is saying that japan has to rearm to protect itself from china because they understand that just as the president abandoned morsi to the mob in the streets, when it really counts on those islands, the americans might not have the punch to do what's needed and they're going to have to look at for themselves. >> you say beware, america. if half the country right now is on some sort of entitl
that over time our brilliant people in the i.t. world, information technology world, many of whom i know personally, will find some way to resolve what really has been a horrible, horrible situation. we all know it's horrible. and i hope they can. i hope they can resolve that. i think it's going to be hard because it's such a mess, and it's been done by at least four major groups and dozens of others. i hope mr. zeinst is successful in his efforts to try and cure that, but that doesn't cure the problems with obamacare. a lot of people, a lot of businesses, especially small businesses in our society today, are making sure their employees don't work more than 30 hours, because if they do, it triggers their having to pay what appear to many to be outrageous health care costs. that's just one thing, and that's not going to be easily solved because the bill is such a stupid bill. it was stupid to begin with. we knew it wouldn't work to begin with. we made that case that it wouldn't work. and, frankly, we're here in this really, really ridiculous posture where we've been stymied because of --

as well as the markets and the advance of technology and international trade and all of those things that together affect us. if the droughts in the midwest last year wasn't a clear enough reminder about the tools that are necessary when it comes to agricultural production, then most assuredly the blizzard of not many weeks ago that wreaked such havoc across the dakotas stand as a solemn reminder. and also not just on the side of the chart where we help make sure there's enough food and fiber, but on the side that reflects the struggles that many of our fellow citizens have meeting their needs every day as consumers. the nutrition title is a very important part of the national safety net and how we address all of those components most assuredly will affect the lives of literally millions and millions of people across the country. so i would say this to my friends all around this table. it took us years to get here, but we are here. it may take days and weeks, perhaps, to finish crafting what we'll call the 2013 farm bill in popular discussion at the coffee shops, but we can do it. we

industrial average but it includes tech companies like cisco and ibm. qualifies as the nexus of technology and finance. old industrial complex and ge, all of the above. it's a perspective. on the other question, it's a very, very, very good point. you notice chairman bernanke gave testimony in may, late may, where he flicked at this idea of tapering some of the quantitative easing, some of the extraordinary stimulus on the order of $85 billion a month of purchases of treasury and mortgage securities that have been piled on in addition to keeping zero interest rates since december of 2008. that's the fed's traditional lever of monetary policy. when they suggested to taper, the experience in volatility, everybody started to worry about higher interest rates. in the end, the economy wasn't strong enough, especially with the federal reserve with transition from bernanke to janet yellen for them to take away the stimulus. it's worrisome, we're not talking about increasing interest rates. we're talking about them pulling away some of the emergency -- there's quantitative easing one, quantitative
